Finding Health and Weight Loss in Mexico

Bariatric and obesity weight loss procedures are a multi-billion dollar industry. In the United States, a bariatric surgical procedure often costs up to $30,000. Sadly, many weight loss or bariatric surgical procedures or obesity treatments are not covered by normal health insurance policies.

Some of the most common obesity procedures are beyond the reach of Americans, such as lap banding. The procedure is also called laparoscopic gastric banding (LAGB) and involves placement of a silicone band around the entrance to the stomach. Vertical banded gastroplasty is known by the more common name of stomach stapling, which uses surgical staples to section off the upper portion of the stomach.

An increasingly popular destination for bariatric, obesity and weight loss surgeries and treatments is sunny, warm Mexico. The best gastric bypass surgeons in Mexicali or laparoscopic bariatric surgery specialists in Mexico are located conveniently just across the border. Obesity surgery and weight loss treatments in Mexico at locations such as The Antiobesity Center in Cancun or Dr. Jorge Maytorena’s Obesity Surgery in Mexicali offers safe, effective and affordable weight loss and obesity surgical treatments that are not covered by insurance plans in the U.S.
